A pig and her battle tortoise fight chicken wizards

While I work on rebuilding my buffer for the Boulder and Fleet webcomic I'm serializing my latest mini-comic, Pickles and Taft: Adventurers for Hire on the B&F website.

You can read the comic here: http://boulderandfleet.com

And if you really like the comic, you can purchase it here: http://tinyastronaut.com

I had a lot of fun making this one. I hope you have fun reading it.

I'll be at TCAF this weekend!

http://trorontocomics.com

If you're in the Toronto area this weekend I hope you'll make a stop at the Toronto Reference Library and check out one of the best comics shows in North America.

I'll be there with my new mini-comic about a pig and her battle tortoise, titled Pickles and Taft: Adventurers for Hire. I'll also have copies of Boulder and Fleet, Tiny Hamilton, Cap'n Cat: Former Shark Hunter, and The Warren Commission Report. Just look for the guy next to +Brandon Dayton on the first floor.

On Friday I'll be leading my "how to lead a comics workshop even if you don't know how to draw" workshop during TCAF's Librarian and Educator Day: http://torontocomics.com/teachers-and-librarians/

Hope to see you there!

Over 40 free events during Kids Read Comics weekend at AADL

http://mlatcomics.com/krc/programming

Kids Read Comics is a convention that promotes comics for kids and the creators who make them. Every hour you'll find a free hands-on workshop where you'll learn comics storytelling techniques from our guest artists.

This year we have a terrific schedule of workshops for kids and teens. Whether you want to make journal comics, learn advanced drawing techniques, or even learn how to storyboard cartoons, there's something for you to try at KRC. You can download a PDF of the program or view it on the web here: http://mlatcomics.com/krc/programming

"Lugubrious" is one of those perfect words that sounds like its meaning. It's like the name of a Dickens character.

And I agree with you, +Rachel R.​ -- chickens are pretty awesome!

Talking about grit and long-term projects on the LIA Cast!

Rob recently shipped his new iOS game, This Panda Needs You (https://goo.gl/U9z4qC), which he quietly worked on for 2 years. He chronicled the experience on his blog (http://goo.gl/x4JPyb), highlighting how the tools and methods used in completing a long-term project can change mid-stream, and how not talking about the project publicly can be so challenging.

In this episode of the LIA Cast, we'll use Rob's experiences to have a broad discussion on the challenges in shipping something that takes a long time to build and the care taking required once the thing is released.

You can participate in the discussion via comments on the Hangout event page: https://plus.google.com/events/c6ej0vd4askc3pf8659o17rn354
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jerzy Drozd. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

5 things 80s cartoons taught me about writing

I recently did a talk for Nerd Nite Ann Arbor about how kids' cartoons can help us achieve clarity in our writing.

Digging deep into shows like Transformers, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, and even Sky Commanders!

Story
Tagline
Cartoonist and teaching artist.
Introduction
As a cartoonist, I've worked for publishers and self-published my own comics stories. Here's a list of some things I'm known for:


I also work as a freelance illustrator (here's my portfolio). Some of my past clients include:
  • Marvel Comics
  • The Arizona Department of Tourism
  • The Arizona Nutrition Network
  • Wachovia Bank
  • Brain Age games for Nintendo

I'm a teaching artist as well, which is one of my favorite jobs. I teach comics classes and lead presentations on comics year-round in the southeast Michigan area and beyond. Here are some of the places at which I've led classes or presentations:

I co-organize the annual Kids Read Comics Celebration, a free comics event that offers a family-friendly artist alley, drawing demos, and free hands-on workshops for kids and adults.

Lastly, I'm known for creating audio and video shows about comics. I host a weekly show recorded live at the Ann Arbor District Library called Comics Are Great! along with many other shows available on my website.
